The first time TGF and I made the most delicious meal ever, we used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. We made it again, and this time boneless skinless chicken breasts were on sale (buy one pack of breasts, get one free–who would pass that up?).

So we decided to cook ALL the chicken at once, shred it and freeze what we didn’t use for dinner that night.

In the morning, TGF put the breasts in the crockpot with some water, put it on low and that was that.

When we got home at the end of the day, I shredded up the meat and packed it up once it was cool. I also attempted to save the broth. I’m not sure this will be usable. I strained it, but not very well apparently.

Freezer bag filled with the "leftovers", a container with what we needed for dinner right then and my sad broth.

I considered this Lazy Cooking worthy because this is my first go at any type of batch cooking and batch cooking is “lazy cooking” to me. It utilizes that one moment in time where I feel productive so I can be lazy when it comes to meals in the future!


The Best Dish We’ve Ever Made

We went to my food Pinterest board, (which has become our go-to cookbook, no joke), and decided this recipe for Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake from Saving Money Living Life would be good to make.

You guys. This is the best thing I’ve ever cooked, and TGF agrees that of all the things we’ve made together, this is the best. Here are some pics from the process, but you can click on the link above for the full recipe. And trust me, unless you have dietary restrictions, you want to make this recipe. You will be so grateful you did with that first bite.

Mixing things up.

The final, delicious product.
